Thierry Henry : "We put some strength back into the legs"
After 10 days of break where the players have trained hard, the coach enters this second part of the season with objectives and determination.

“We all met this morning before the training regarding Radamel Falcao, our captain. It’s not easy for him. He returned to Colombia. We did a minute of silence for the death of his father. We send our thoughts to him and his family.

I did not have a good holiday season because we wanted to get out of the red zone before the break. We will try to be more positive. We need positive, fresh players who can use their experience. “


“We put some strength into the legs of the players during the break. It was necessary to stay active, the players came back earlier and trained. What is important is the work done during the last 10 days. We must think about this work ahead of the upcoming matches.

We always see a match in the Coupe de France where the underdog beat the favorite. In football, you can dominate the whole game and concede on the counter. We learned about this Canet team. The atmosphere will be difficult and they will want to do something. “

“Djibril Sidibé works very hard and makes every effort to physically return to the top.

Naldo is an experienced player, a German champion. A central defender who is calm and scores a lot of goals. He is a leader. The young people have helped us a lot, but we need experience. Against Guingamp it was striking. He is fit to play Sunday in the Coupe de France.”
